Children’s Ministry

SUNDAY MORNING PROGRAMS

Children’s Church is our worship experience that provides Bible-based and age appropriate learning and worship experiences for those 4yrs-5th Grade.  There is music, games, lessons, crafts, and other activities that all work together to help bring the Bible to life in the lives of young people.  We would love to have your kids join us!!

9 AM: Children’s Church is offered for children 4 yeas old-5th grade and Nursery is available for children 1 year-3 years of age.  Children are dismissed from the sanctuary following worship to Kids Cove and parents need to pick their children up immediately following the service.
11 AM: Children’s Church for 4 years old-5th grade (divided into 3 age groups due to the larger attendance) and Nursery for those 1 year old-3 years old is available.  Children are dismissed from the sanctuary following worship to Kids Cove and need to be picked up by a parent immediately following the service.

WEEKDAY PROGRAM: Jesus Seekers (September-April)

Jesus Seekers is for children 4 years old- 5th grade.  We meet Monday nights from 6:30 pm to 8 pm.  A detailed schedule of events is available. Please contact lindsay@mtolivebrethren.org for more information.
Each weekly meeting opens with a lively large-group presentation and then breaks into small groups for deeper Bible exploration.  Bible study, Scripture memory, and fun life-skill activities make each meeting memorable and full of variety. Our program is unique to us and creates the perfect environment for developing healthy relationships–with peers, Christian adults, and ultimately Jesus Christ–resulting in genuine life transformation.

Jesus Seekers follows the Rockingham County Schools schedule.  If school is closed due to inclement weather, Jesus Seekers for that day will be cancelled.  Information on cancellations will be posted on the website, on the WHSV.com website and sent out through church wide email (to be added to the email list please contact Jeanne Barker).**
